The Catechetical Review - Communicating Christ for a New Evangelization

La catequesis para las personas con discapacidad

Authored by Sr. M. Johanna Paruch in Issue #2.2 of Catechetical Review
Para la comprensión y la conversión: en servicio de los que tienen una discapacidad cognitiva En esta columna, hemos estado platicando acerca de la catequesis para personas con discapacidades; y hasta aquí, hemos enfocado principalmente a las personas con discapacidades físicas. El siguiente artículo de esta serie tomará en consideración trastornos del espectro autista, mientras que en este artículo consideramos discapacidades de aprendizaje y retrasos en el desarrollo. Es importante recalcar el siguiente punto: aunque algunas personas tengan discapacidades que puedan perjudicar su capacidad para comprender las enseñanzas de la Iglesia Católica, aun pueden tener un amor profundo para Jesucristo. De hecho, el Directorio nacional para la catequesis dice, "Los niños con discapacidades cognitivas a menudo tienen una comprensión intuitiva poco común de lo sagrado." El Directorio nacional para la catequesis también declara, "Se deben de establecer metas y objetivos catequéticos para los estudiantes que tienen necesidades especiales y que forman parte de la catequesis parroquial. No se les debe de segregar para una catequesis especializada a menos que sus discapacidades les imposibilite para la participación en el programa básico catequético."
